Work experience for people with disabilities and special needs including school pupils is available at Crow Recycling.
Secondary school pupils with special needs from both mainstream and special schools, college students and adults who have left education are among those who do work placements with Crow.
The work includes:
- Sorting paper into different grades so it is ready for recycling
- Shredding and baling paper to sell as animal bedding and packaging
- Crushing drinks cans so they are ready to recycle
- Helping at the Scrapstore which sells recycled materials to use for arts and crafts
Placements can be short or long and for all or part of a week. Secondary school pupils visit before their placements begin. Older volunteers do their first few days as a trial before deciding whether to continue.
People on work experience need to bring steel tipped boots with them.
People on work placements are supervised by staff and volunteers with Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
The placements are not paid.
To find out more about work placements ring Crow Recycling on 024 7655 24444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
